Chattel
definition
1. Law An article of movable personal property.
2. A slave.
[Middle English chatel, movable property, from Old French, from Medieval Latin

At the beginning of the Victorian period upon her marriage everything a woman once owned in her own right, including property and any money she might earn or inherit automatically belonged to her husband. Married Victorian women had no voice, and their hands were tied. They became the chattel of the man. She could not divorce her husband, though he could divorce her for adultery, and in the event of a divorce, he would automatically get custody of the children and she had no rights of access to see her children. A divorced woman had no chance of acceptance in society again.

    excellent composition, love the mask and fish….wonderfully imaginative…..the narrative is a sad truth of the not so great part, of the by gone era, that visually, is so beautiful and appealing to me….to live it, would have been another thing.

  • Thank you so much Lisa, I am so glad you like the mask. The Mask represents many things for me, it is away for the female to masquerade herself behind in a world that devalued the role of a female and, at the same time, it’s the husbands way of showing the world, the female who is gagged and bound by the hands is his property as she carries a mask of his face. :) xx
